Carlsbad.

It has been a really busy year!  Chikitsa has officially relocated to beautiful Carlsbad, CA.  As it turns out, finding just the right office space is not easy in Southern California.  So.  In the meantime, I am available for house calls and have access to occasional use of space in the Village of Carlsbad as well as Encinitas.  Give me a ring (or shoot me a text) if you'd like to connect! :)

Craniosacral 2 at the Esalen Institute

October was very good to me.  I had never been to The Esalen Institute before.  What a treat!  And what a perfect place to take my practice deeper and reap tangible benefits from Craniosacral work.  Beautiful weather, oceanside hot springs, delicious organically cooked meals, and great people!  Oh!  I also got to see the Monarch butterflies in migration, tons of hummingbirds, bluebirds and 6+ dolphins leaping/breaching/dancing for me my last day!  WOW.

In class, we reviewed the 10 step protocol, learned about the dynamic relationship between the sphenoid bone (in the cranial cavity), and the sacrum.  I also learned more techniques for regulating the sphenoid.  Then what once seemed daunting... inter-oral work.  I was pleasantly surprised to discover how truly relaxing the effect of this work can be!  One of my classmates did an amazing job disimpacting my vomer from my sphenoid bone (via the hard palate).  Another classmate spent 20 minutes unwinding my sacrum.  Holy crap did it dance!  This work brought me face to face with old traumas in the most gentle, supportive way I could have imagined.  I feel so blessed.

It has been a month now, and I still feel the effects of the work.  I feel lighter, more relaxed and much happier!  It is my hope that more and more people will catch on to how beneficial this modality is.  It truly makes the world a better place!

Until next time.

Craniosacral training in San Francisco

Earlier this month, I embarked on a journey of Cranial Sacral Therapy Training through the Upledger Institute.  I could not be more in love with a therapeutic process.  This modality is exceedingly gentle and deeply, deeply healing.  

I found that as a practitioner and as a receiver, that the more I could let go, the better the results.  What a liberation!  I am so grateful for the gifts this is bringing to my personal life, and the possibilities it can bring to my clients.  I am honored to share this beautiful work with the Flagstaff community!!!
